Oh Hell, this is EASY!
Just get davy boy gregory to write you up a friend of the court brief!
If davy boy can do it, so can you!
Hammer home the point of the 14th amendment: “Equal Protection Under The Law.”
If a pantywaiste bed wetter in DC can get away with it, so too can a vet in NYC.
Noise and stink need to be heaped on this one. Davy boy and NBC should be subpoenaed to testify on behalf of he vet.
“If a pantywaiste bed wetter in DC can get away with it, so too can a vet in NYC.”
This is NOWHERE NEAR NY City. This was in the town of Leray, which is near Watertown. We are talking very rural, very much on the edge of the middle of nowhere. A couple hundred miles from NYC.
What I find most disturbing is that they were found “ when he was randomly pulled over for a vehicle check.” WTF?
Also disturbing is that it was apparently the County Sheriff Dept. that did it. I figured it would be the NY State Troopers we would have to worry about. Guess I was wrong.
And oh yeah: The damn law isn’t even in effect yet! That is the biggest Whiskey Tango Foxtrot of all.
If he was traveling through, there is a federal law which specifically protects him.
I have no idea of what the law is where this happened but it would be unusual for a rural town to have such a law.
The ussc allows police check points to catch drunk drivers. So random vehicle checks would also be allowable under our living constitution model recently invented
So did they suspect he had a drunk in the trunk who was somehow actually the one doing the driving?
I have been through Florida State Trooper checkpoints 3 different times. Twice they waved me through as I wasn’t the correct number for being stopped. The one time they did stop me he glanced at my drivers license and sent me on the way. He didn’t even look for proof of insurance.
There was never any chance of being searched unless I guess they had some reason to suspect me.
I just remembered there was a fourth time. This was on a very rural road and I am sure they were stopping every one. He looked at my license then glanced at my seat belt and hollered at another trooper: “look at this”. The other one came over and they both laughed and sent me on my way.
What they saw was that my seat belt would not work for some reason, it was too short so I had cut part of one in the back off and tied the two pieces together to make it long enough.
I realized this later, it wasn’t NYC. It was BACKWASH NY State.
And that’s even more depressing. Because once upon a time, backwash NY State was a common sense place.
Only place I go now in NY, is the Seneca Nations. Nice people, nice laws.
Sorry, I should have read the story better at first, but it doesn’t change my opinion of the outcome.
Thanks for the post.
Iirc the standard is “ public safety.” Drunk driving is just an example.
Last one I went through was chino ca, 5. Pm on a fri.
Clogged up city traffic. Everyone trying to get home from work.
My theory is that they don’t do them later because the number of cops on ot would be higher
Don’t worry; the police (or military) will never participate in taking our guns away. This LEO officer could have very easily chosen not to see the magazines if he had wanted to and let the person go on his way.
“five counts of third degree criminal possession of a weapon”
Just how does an empty magazine constitute a weapon? You’d have to throw it at someone to effect that. WTF?
This guy was randomly pulled over for a “vehicle check”?????
WTF is that? They started with a 5th amendment infringement!!!
I was going to New York later this year for some fun. Skip that. Been there plenty of times. I’m on boycott until this insanity ends.
They probably have it right about it being a weapon. It is surprising what some of these laws call a weapon. I once read the Virginia code on concealed weapons and they could have gotten Dennis The Menace. It was illegal to carry a slingshot.
On the other hand there is a federal law which exempts travelers for being charged if their weapon is in the trunk and unloaded as these were so they falsely arrested him apparently.
I realized this later, it wasnt NYC. It was BACKWASH NY State.
Watertown is home to Fort Drum Army base. on the eastern shore of Lake Ontario. Hardly “Backwash NY”
Did the arresting officer have more than six bullets in his mag?
LOL. Good question.
I don't need one because I have a letter from my physician testifying that my implanted pacemaker/defibrillator makes it more dangerous for me to wear the stupid required chest belt restraint than to go without.
